Tool lenght setting
« on: June 28, 2015, 08:35:48 PM »
Please forgive me if this is a dumb question...

I would like to know how to set up a simple automatic touch tool length setter. I have a block that will record when it is touched. I need to know how to program Mach 4 to automatically set the height when I select the button.

 :-\
any help to a novice with Mach 4 would be appreciated
Peter

look in the mach web site under documents there is a M4 scripting manual in there it has the code for tool height but you need to go through the manual from the start to get it to work plus there is other bits in there that will help

I am using a removable touch plate. I was hoping that someone had already written the code and could share it. I plan to put the touch plate under the current position of the bit and hit the button.
